    Spicy Whole Grain Crackers
    This cracker recipes was found in the Keto category of SkinnyMs.
    How can these crackers be keto friendly and have only one carb per serving? The recipe calls for saltines? One saltine has 4 carbs and the recipes calls for an entire sleeve (approx. 40 crackers).
    160 carbs in 8 crackers = 20 carbs in one cracker (no fiber added).
